Progressive.NET Tutorials / Defining Acceptance Criteria in Gherkin

Please RSVP for instructions on how to join the event.


User stories in the product backlog are just reminders for a discussion. This discussion that clarifies the necessary details takes place shortly before implementation only. But how are these details defined and how can you review after implementation whether they have been fulfilled? Acceptance criteria are an important element of agile specifications. Still, they are often used just vaguely or omitted completely. The Gherkin specification language has been introduced by Cucumber and today it is used in several BDD tools, like SpecFlow. This interactive tutorial helps you to gather useful practices for defining acceptance criteria in Gherkin. Christian and Gaspar will explain the concept of acceptance criteria and let you practice their usage through concrete examples.

Christian Hassa got in contact with ATDD/BDD two years ago, when he started to look for improvements of handling regression testing and requirements engineering in the Scrum projects he was working with. He learned about Cucumber for Ruby and started to use it in a .NET project. His team soon decided to build SpecFlow, to provide a better experience for automating Gherkin scenarios on the .NET platform. Today SpecFlow is lively open source project that shares the Gherkin parser with Cucumber. Christian is working since several years as Product Owner and Coach in Scrum projects. He is managing partner at TechTalk, a .NET services and consulting company focusing on agile delivery. His role is leading the evolvement of methodology and practices at TechTalk and facilitating their application in projects and at clients.
